CMA Awards

I have never been that into award shows or the fashion that comes with it. But last night I got hooked on the CMA Awards. Did any of you watch it?

Wow! I'd just like to say that the transformation of Carrie Underwood has truly been incredible. I can't believe she is the same person who won American Idol only a few years ago. She has become such a popular singer and she definitely has the voice to back it up! I have loved all of her music and I am especially hooked on Cowboy Casanova right now.

Carrie then:
Carrie now:


Not everyone was quite so hot though! Kellie Pickler is now a redhead. Wynonna and Naomi Judd, I have absolutely no words. How in the world are you two related to Ashley?! Their time on stage presenting Best New Artist was also quite awkward. And Leann Rimes, you shouldn't be talking about how hot the male country singers are because everyone is afraid you are going to steal their man! Did you notice how no one laughed at her jokes???



Ooh, and I just loved Tim McGraw's performance. He's a favorite of mine from way back! I am very excited about seeing The Blind Side next weekend, but I didn't even realize that Tim was in it. I'm even more excited now! I also really enjoyed Martina McBride's performance. And Taylor Swift was the big winner, even taking home Entertainer of the Year!



If you watched, what were your favorite parts?

Ooooh I loved the show! It made me really homesick for Nashvill though.

*I feel that exact same way about Leanne Rimes. Least favorite of the night. Ugh.
*My favorite parts were when Lady Antebellem took home their 2 awards. I know Hillary Scott so I was sooooooooooo excited for them.
*I LOVED Martina's purple dress during her performance.
*Oooooh and I loved the performance by the Zac Brown Band!

I agree about Leann Rimes; she's lost way too many points to be making jokes.

And, Taylor Swift is great. I just wish she looked more her age. She's so cute, but I often think she overdoes it.

LOVED sugarland, and zac brown band's performance of "devil went down to ga".

and little jimmy dickens cracked me up.

Katie said...

It was a wonderful show, I really enjoyed it! I totally agree about the transformation of Carrie Underwood. I think my favorite moment might have been the look on Taylor Swift's face when they said she won Entertainer of the Year. She was genuinely shocked!

P.S. I had a letter to send back to you while you were sick, obviously you are not sick anymore! I promise to get one to you soon!

I was glued to the TV for the CMAs last night!! My favorites were The Zac Brown Band preforming The Devil Went Down to Georgia, and Lady Antebellum's performance and win of Best Group. Loved it!

And I loved Darius Rucker, too! =.)

Best dressed - Carrie, in all of her costume changes.
Worst dressed - not a fan of Leann Rimes white dress...

sarah said...

Carrie Underwood sure has changed-she was cute before, but she is gorgeous now! And her voice keeps getting better! (Who would ave thought that was possible?!)

And I love Tim McGraw-always have. Cannot wait to see The Blind Side!

Angela said...

Come on, Wynonna looked hot... HOT as in she looks like she has been laying in the sun for about 27 hours straight! I really thought she looked like a Wynonna drag queen.. and whoa.. Leann Rimes.. Halloween is OVER, take off the mummy costume!

Carrie Underwood was definitely my favorite... she just always gets it right... or I should say that her stylists always get it right!

MrsSouthernBelle said...

Carrie's dresses were To.Die.For. I love her! Leann looked like a hussy. I was especially proud of Georgia Boys Zac Brown Band!

Brandi said...

I watched a little. I love Carrie and Taylor.

I LOVE Carrie! She is so adorable, amazing body, and seems super down to earth. Leanne R is no longer on my love list... kinda skanky with the whole affair thing...

Sarah Wyland said...

The CMAs are like Christmas for me - this is what I do - or will do when I finish school! I've written all kinds of articles for my website on it.

Some favorites:

~ Carrie and Brad as hosts - hilarious! Loved Little Jimmy Dickens and the Kanye spoof

~ Taylor performing "Fifteen"

~ Daughtry and Vince Gill and Kenny and Dave Matthews performances

I agree on LeAnn. I thought she looked a hot mess myself.

loved zac brown band's performance...way to represent georgia!!!

Mrs. Dew said...

Carrie is AMAZING! LOVED all of her looks! IMO Taylor was NOT very good live, YIKES! OBSESSED w/Zac Brown Band, OBSESSED!

Kassie said...

I couldn't believe that Kellie Pickler did that to her hair. She was one that needed blonde hair I think! ha! Carrie Underwood has done sooo well lately though, it's incredible.

Jill said...

I didn't see the show but I love Carrie. I think she's so pretty.

Semi-Slacker Mom said...

Loved Carrie's outfits. The green dress was my fave. I was so proud of Taylor! She's so cute. Zac & Jason were awesome! The skits were cute, except the swine flu one. Kinda lame. Loved Kenny & Dave!

Amy Lynn said...

I was sick and missed it live, but my awesome boyfriend recorded it for me (without being asked! so sweet!) and we watched it tonight. Leann Rimes looked like a ZOMBIE! gross. Carrie Underwood has come a LONG way. Martina McBride is GORGEOUS! The Judds look awful. Did anyone else notice that Reba's boobies were a tad bit "perkier" than normal??? And I'm really even more excited now that I'm going to see Zac Brown Band in concert on Saturday :) they rocked! Oh, and kudos to Taylor Swift! I absolutely adore her and loved that she got the credit she deserved. Without being interrupted, lol.

perfectly paisley said...

I watched too!!!! I can't believe Taylor took home so many awards. Crazy and exciting for her! I am shocked at how far Carrie Underwood has come too! :o)

Lucky in Love said...

Oh I love Tim! I didn't know he was in that movie either...hm.

Elle said...

Carrie looked so great in those sequin shorts....

left you something on my blog today

MaierHousehold said...

Carrie was AWESOME!
Leann Rimes looked AWFUL!
Kellie looked better blonde!
Martina will always be a favorite.
Taylor--she ROCKS!

Mountain Girl said...

I loved the show this year, Carrie and Brad make a good hosting pair. I started tweeting as soon as I saw Lee Ann, her make up was awful, it made her look like she had her eyes closed.

Jules said...

I completely agree. Carrie has definitely matured into a beautiful woman. She is so talented and she stays out of Hollywood drama. I just have a lot of respect for her. Kellie P. definitely needs to go back to being a blonde and I don’t think that anyone likes Leann Rimes these days.

I only caught the very end and saw Taylor win entertainer of the year. She is just adorable. Faith Hill also looked fantastic!

I hope you have a fab weekend…xoxo

M said...

Haha. You are spot on! My words in response to this post: ditto. Particularly in regard to Wynonna and Naomi. Wynonna looked a strange shade of orange to me!

Peace.Love. Lipgloss. said...

It was such an amazing show! I was shocked & slightly grossed out with how unnaturally tan Wynnona was!!! I agree Carrie looks fab!

Kristin said...

I thought Taylor and Nicole Kidman's gowns were amazing!

amazeingteacher said...

I just wondered were those bobby pins coming out of Naomi's hair??? And...Leanne Rimes eyemakeup, what is up with that? I used to think she was so stylish, but she didn't look so great on the show.
